WINCHESTER, MODEL 1886. 

Thia Gun is adapted to the .45-70 Government Cartridges of oar make, with 405 or 500 grain bullet, and 
to .50-110-300, .45-90-300, .40-82-260, .40-65-2fi0, or .38-56-255 Cartridges, especially made for it. 

The system is a new one, as shown in the cuts. It is manipulated, like the Winchester, by a finger 
lever. This part has a short movement, enabling easy and rapid firing of the gun from the shoulder. The 
gun is locked by two bolts, having a motion like the old Sharp's breech-block which show on the top of the 
gun when it is closed. In this position the locking boltB lie one on each side of the bveech-bolt, each fitting 
into its slot in the frame on the one side, and into a similar slot In the breech-bolt on the other. A glance m 
the gun will convince anyone that this is a most simple and solid looking device.

WINCHESTER .22 CALIBRE REPEATING tRIFLE, 

MODEL 1890. 



The system is a new one, with sliding forearm movement, and is well adapted to small cartridges. The 
breech-block locks itself in plain view, and is of such size as to permit a strong firing-pin and extractor, and 
offer a good cover to the head of the cartridge. The gun locks at each closing movement, and cannot be 
opened except by letting down the hammer or pushing forward the tiring-pin. The parts arc few, and are 
strong and made interchangeable. 

The arrangement of breech-block and hammer is such that the gun cannot be prematurely fired, nor can 
the hammer be pulled prematurely, causing misfire. 

The method of loading the magazine is, we think, the best that can be devised. Many experiments have 
convinced us that cartridges as small as the .22 short cannot be easily loaded into the magazine when pushed 
against the pressure of the magazine spring. They are too small to be firmly held after the fingers and cart- 
ridges have become greasy, as they necessarily must in handling this kind of a cartridge. 

The sliding forearm movement we believe to be particularly applicable to a gun handling this size cart- 
ridge, where little power is required to put the cartridge into the chamber. 

We feel sure that this gun will be found to be always serviceable, and that the action will require no 
care to keep it in order, nor will the action need any cleaning. 

In calibres as small as the 22 short, too much care cannot be expended in keeping the barrel clean. 

Rifles of this model will be adapted to the regular .22 short, 22 long and .22 Winchester fire-rim cart- 
ridges (the latter being especially designed for this gun, with inside lubricated bullet). 

Guns will be furnished only with 24-inch octagon barrels, plain triggers and straight grip, rifle stocks. 
We are not prepared to furnish longer barrels, set triggers or pistol grip stocks.

This Rifle has the improved cross-bolt in the breech, making it absolutely safe and secure from all 
accidents. The movement of the lever in closing the Gun throws the cartridge into the chamber, thus avoid- 
,-hig t.vo cartridges into the receiver at once, which occurs sometimes with other movements. The 
working of it is the smoothest and easiest of any Gun now made ; the slioit stroke of the lever enables it to 
be loaded and shot readily, without removing it from the shoulder. The working parts contain about one- 
half as many pieces as any Gun now made, thus insuring great service ; and the high reputation of the Marlin 
Works, as to shooting qualities and service, makes this decidedly the beet Gun now made.

THE MARLIN SAFETY REPEATING RIFLE, MODEL 1891.

.- rifle gives excellent results up to 200 yards. The 22-50 shot is of the same length as the 22 long

ia operated hy a fluger lever and uny one using this system for home praol -id such 

practice to bo a great help instead of a positive detriment, when he goos into the woods with his larger 
re and finds himself in the presence of game or danger. The throw of the lever ia very short and the 
on remarkably easy. The solid top and side ejecting principle, so successfully introduced in our 
retained in this arm and is of very great importance, because rim-fire cartridges are very- 
discharged. A slight squeezing of any part of the rim is all that is necessary to explode 
them ether daugerous nor disagreeable on a Solid Top Gun. 

Our loading device consists of only oiic piece— a spring cover. It will not get out of order and ia not a 
dirt trap. It is the easiest gun to load we have ever seen. 

The two greatest difficulties in the way of making a 22 calibre Magazine Rifle are brought about because 
the ammunition is lubricated on the outside of the bullets and because the shells are not firmly crimped onto 
the bullets. Lubricating on the inside makes the ammunition expensive. Crimping the shell makes it less 
accurate. From the first condition it results that when the arm ia heated the lubricantl melts and unites 
with the burnt powder and penetrates every recess of the action, hardening as the arm coois. After using a 
few days, "The gun works hard;" the action must be cleaned. From the second conditon it sometimes 
results that the cartridge breaks in two in the action and the shell and bullet are jammed in all manner of 
ways, completely locking the arm. In order to counteract as much as possible these objectionable features 
we introduce our greatest improvement, a removable side ; an entirely new feature and one which will be of 
great practical value. 

The unscrewing of the thumb screw on the right hand side of the action allows the entire side of the 
receiver to be removed, and also, in turn, the carrier block, finger lever and breech bolt. From the breech 
bolt may be taken the firing pin and extractor ; all this without any tools whatever and with the lever in 
any position. This allows the action to be thoroughly cleaned without trouble or tools, and allows the 
barrel to be wiped out from the breech, which is very desirable in a small bore gun; and if the action becomes 
clogged, one miuute is time sufficient to open the gun and remove the obstruction.

H. Pieper Patent Breech Loading Shot Guns. 

This Guu is now well known. The construction and action of it is the best now made. The barrels fit into 
the breech attachment, which is one solid piece of steel, same as in cut. This being in one piece, insures it 
against breakage and danger of the barrels spreading apart, as in common guns; also holds the barrels in 
perfect position, and in connection with the muzzle band, makes it the safest and strongest Gun now made. 
The barrels are finest bored cylinder and choke bore, and cannot be beaten for shooting qualities.

AIR RIFLES. 




MAEKHAM AIR RIFLE. 
Prioe, with Dart, 500 Rounds Shot and One Ring Target, $1.50. 

The greatest Rifle for the price ever known. It shoots common B. B. shot 100 yards. It's the boy's 
delight and purely a boy's gun ; yet men and women are enchanted with it. No powder or caps — no uoise — 
not dangerous to handle. It costs but one cent to shoot 100 times. This gun is splendid for Boys, Girls and 
Ladies to learn to shoot with. Total length of Rifle, 32 inches ; weight, 2 pounds. Has shape and form of 
Rifle. It can be used indoors as well as out. 

To Load and Use the Gon. — Take the gun by the neck of the stock with the right hand. With the 
thumb of the left hand unhook the spring to the barrel ; break the barrel down till it locks ; insert the ball 
or dart well into the barrel at the breech, and then replace. Never snap off when not loaded. To shoot 
darts accurately, push the dart bepond the spring in the barrel. 

If properly handled, this gun will shoot 100,000 times without repairs. It is the greatest invention ever 
known in this line, and the greatest attraction out. Everybody is attracted by it, and everybody that likes 
fun should have one. One boy killed 28 English sparrows in an hour. For rates, mice, cherry birds, toads, 
snakes, etc., it is just the thing. The trade supplied.

Shoots sixty-five times at one loading; uses B. B. shot ; Blue Barrel, walnut stock, adjustable sights.

RIFLE and SHOT GUN SUNDRIES. 

A GREAT CONVENIENCE TO THOSE WHOSE EYES ARE FAILING. 

THE SLOTTERBEK SHOOTING SPECTACLES. 




Patented by Chas. Slotterbek, Feb. 3, 1885. 

The Simplest, Most Practical and Best Shooting Spectacles Ever Invented. 

$2.00 Per Pair. 

Indorsed by Capt. A. H. Bogardus and the best and most noted sportsmen on the Pacific Coast, as well as 

old hunters generally. 

Makes Open-Sijrhted Rifle Shooting More Rapid and Accurate than u.ny Globe or Peep Sight 

Ever Invented. 

HOW TO USE. 

When the Rifle is brought to the shoulder and head in proper position to take aim through the sights, 
the small hole in the diagram, near the letter P, is shaded and has a small hole that acts the part of a peep 
sight, and is so placed as to come in proper position- before the eye, without in any way straining the eye or 
putting the head in an unnatural position. 

In ordering these, if you know the number of the glass you use for reading, send it ; if not, give your 
age, condition of sight, etc. The numbers run 30, 32, 34, 36, 38, 40, 42, 44, 50, 60, 72 and 157. No^SO is 
for very old men ; No. 157 is for young men with good eyes.

Daley's Improved Patent Hand-Cuffe. 

In placing these Hand-Cuffs on the Market we are confident that a trial of them will convince any offi- 
ce the Wit lie ever handled. 

l>e«t C»et Steel Drop Forginge ; every part is made by the finest tools and 
>u bo produced. The reputation which we have gained for superior workmanship in the 
la of Fire-arms will be fully sustained here, and is a sufficient guarantee of the perfection of work 
and fini 

The Hand-Cuffs can bo applied quickly, and when adjusted are automatically double locked and per- 
fectly secure without further handling. Once on the prisoner they cannot be opened without the use of the 
key. 

The bar is notched on both sides (not on top or bottom), and secured by a double lock, so that any effort 
ick the lock ou one side makes it more secure on the other. The peculiar construction of the key, 
i has to displace the mate of itself, debars the possibility of anything but a key so constructed opening 
the lock. 

Again, there is no possibility of getting them on the prisoner wrong ; backwards or forwards, it is 
immaterial. The key slot is eaay to get at. and in the front, where for the safety of the officer it should be, 
as he can insert his key and unlock in daylight or dark, without removing his eyes from the prisoner. 

The Cnffs are round, and have nowhere any sharp angles or corners ; they do not cut or wear the clothes, 
and are easy to carry in the pocket. The notches do not come in contact with the flesh.

Bean's Flexible Police Club. 

This club is made of sole leather cut to required forms, and brought together under a heavy pressure 
over elastic steel-spring wire, cemented and riveted, and covered with the same material, securing a perfect 
surface without break or seam, and very slightly elastic. Over this, to form the handle, a cover is neatly

Tower's Perfeot Twisters or Chain Nippers. 

Patented July 7, 1874, and April 24, 1883. Made from the best selected stock. Perfectly welded chain. 
The handles interlock alike from either side. The advantage claimed for this Nipper (or twister) is in the 
interlocking of the handles. Aa shown in the cut, when in use, the handles lie one within the other, closing 
automatically, so aa to avoid the play and abrasion of two handles between the fingers, as in the old forms.

GUNS REPAIRED. 




All kinds of Eepair Work done in the best possible manner, with neatness and 
dispatch. Work done at tbe lowest possible rates. I pay special attention to this 
branch of my business and can guarantee first-class work. Duplicate parts for all 
standard Guns, Eifles and Pistols. When ordering parts please send broken part, 
if possible, so as to avoid mistakes. When sending Guns for repairs, send the 
entire Gun, if possible. 

I have duplicate parts of all kinds of Fire Arms. Also repair parts for gun- 
smiths, such as springs, nipples, extra lock guards, wad cutters, round bullet molds, 
extra parts for loaders, gun sights of all descriptions ; also, telescopes, sights and 
fittings. 



DIRECTIONS FOR SENDING FOR ARTICLES AND CATALOGUE. 

In sending orders, write your name, town, county and State plainly and dis- 
tinctly ; also, your Postoffice address. Neglect heading your letters " Grub Gulch," 
"Sampson's Eanch," and all such fictitious names that have no Postoffice, as the 
Postoffice authorities will not recognize these names and letters come back to us 
constantly, and many times it is very difficult to trace them. 

Another thing : Parties writing letters will write the whole letter plainly and 
distinctly, and when they come to sign their name will run it all into a lump and 
we have to guess at it. 

In all cases our goods are cash. We must decline to give credit unless parties 
are in business. Where parties in business wish to open an account they should 
give references in their correspondence. For any amount less than Five Dollars 
we cannot open a new account, unless a continuation of trade is expected. 

In ordering small articles, whero it is inconvenient to purchase Postoffice order, 
Wells-Fargo order or to send check, for any amount under Five Dollars we will 
accept postage stamps for same as cash. Two-cent stamps are preferred at all times, 
though 5's and 10's in limited quantities will be accepted. 

Certain articles, such as Gun parts, Pistols, Cutlery and certain kinds of Fishing 
Tackle, can be sent by mail quickly, safely and at very small cost. In this case it 
is desirable to have them registered, which costs ten cents extra on each package. 
Cartridges, Powder, Caps or explosives of any kind cannot be sent by mail in any 
case. Also, Powder cannot be sent by express in any ease, so neglect ordering a 
pound here and there to be sent with odd packages, as there is a fine of five hun- 
dred dollars attached to each offeuse when shipped under another name. 

Postage on merchandise is one cent per ounce or fraction thereof. Packages 
are limited in weight to sixty-four ounces.

C. D. LADD'S PRICE LIST FOR FURS 

FOR PRESENT TIME. 



The FUR TRAJJB is one that fluctuates so largely that it is a difficult thing to make quotations that 
do not vary, as Furs are subject to the whims of fashion ; and what sells readily now, next Fall, perhaps, the 
fashion changes, and it cannot be sold at any price. 

There are some staple articles, however, which are exceptions to this rule, namely: Sea Otter, Siberian 
Sable, Fine Beaver, Land Otter, Silver Gray Fox and Seal. These have a standard value at all timeB, fluc- 
tuating somewhat, according to the quantity taken and the condition of the Winter weather throughout the 
world, which also has a great deal to do with the prices of common Furs. The years of '89 and '90 were 
poor years for the sale of common Furs, and the price of Ooon, Wild Cat, Mink and Marten declined largely, 
and most all shippers lost heavily. The present outlook for these common Furs is somewhat improved, and 
this has advanced the higher priced Furs in proportion. I am prepared at all times to pay the highest possi- 
ble prices for Furs, and solicit consignments from you of same. 

Directions fob Sending- Furs.— Light Furs send by express ; and when you have only a few and they are 
valuable, you can send thein by mail at 1 cent an ounce postage. This is an easy and safe way to send Marten, 
Mink, Fisher and Silver Gray Foxes. Heavy skins, like Bear, Beaver and Coon, can be sent by freight, it being 
the cheapest way. Mark — 0. D. Ladd, San Francisco; also mark on the tag your name, town and State. At the 
same time send me a note informine me how shipped and when ; also the exact number and kind contained in the 
package. As soon as received, I will send you a check for full value of same, giving at the same time the different 
grades and values. 

While trapping and collecting skins, bear in mind that large No. X Prime Skins bring a good price, as it costs 
no more to dress a good skin than it does a poor one, and when dressed it can be sold. Hence, small and Summer 
Skins have value only in proportion to the quality of Fur, and also to the size of the skins. 
Trusting to receive consignments from you in due time, I remain yours truly, 

C. D. LADD, 629-531 Kearny Street, San Francisco. Gal. 

N. B. — Dry and Green Hides, Sheep Skins, Wool and Goat Skins, I do not make a specialty of, but when 
received will sell for you at best possible advantage, charging 5 per cent, commission on the sale.

N. B. — I find tbat a great many Furs come to me almost valueless on account of being badly handled. 
Fox, Coon, Cat, Mink, Marten, Fisher, Land Otter, Wolves, Coyote and Skunk must be cased in order to 
bring good prices ; they want to be skinned whole and stretched like the cuts. The cut of the Fox Skin is 
a nice pattern. Mink, Marten, Fisher and Land Otter want to be made narrower in proportion to length. 

In skinning, cut at the rump right across the hind legs inside, close to the tail. Turn the skin inside 
out, drawing over the body, leave the ears and eyes perfect, as represented ; split the tail, so it will dry 
well ; then shape a board the shape of the cut, draw the skin over the board, flesh side out, draw down and 
tack each leg first, then tack the center of back, drawing it down as much as possible. To stretch it still 
more, insert a cleat in the belly, draw down and tack same, so that it will be as long as the back ; then tack 
on each side of the tail to make the skin square and good shape ; hang in a warm dry-room — do not dry in 
the sun nor use salt in drying — remove the surplus fat and flesh, but do not scrape it olean. As soon as the 
skin sets, which will be from six to ten hours, turn it fur side out ; replace the board to shape it well ; let it 
hang until thoroughly dry- Skin the animal as soon as killed, if possible. 

By following these directions, your Furs will bring much more than when they come cut open in the 
belly and all shriveled up, and not properly stretched and dried. The Fur comes off when they are dressed 
and the skin is valueless ; they are then called burnt skins. California and Oregon Bear when killed in the 
Summer are not worth anything- they will not pay for freight. Pole Cats, Ring Tail Cats and Gray Squirrels 
are not worth anything. Furs on this Coast ought not to be caught before November 1st, and not later than 
1st of March, except Beaver, which can be killed as late as May 1st on the mountain streams. Bear, Coyote 
and California Lion should always have their heads skinned, leaving the ears, eyes and nose perfect, also 
claws when possible, as these are used largely for rugs and mats, and we want them perfect as possible.

PRICE LIST NEWHOUSE'S GENUINE STEEL TRAPS. 




Steel Traps are something of which almost e-reryone in the country needs a few ; besides quite a ram of 
money ean be obtained by saving the skins of Coons, Skunks, Foxes, etc, that are caught -with them. 
Coons, Skunks, Fishers and Minks are caught easily. The best way to catch them is by drawing a piece of 
meat over the grass where they are in the habit of passing. A Trap should be set every 400 or S00 yards. 
The most common way is to hang a piece of meat about 15 inches from the ground, almost over the Trap, 
cover the Trap carefully with leaves or grass ; do not make the ground smooth, but leave it natural, and 
handle the Trap as little as possible. 

Foxes, Coyotes, Otters and Beavers are more difficult to catch, being very sensitive about the scent of a 
person. The best way to catch them is by setting the Trap in water, as they will not step on anything that has 
been handled. In order to catch them easily, find a small stream of running water, dig out a space about 4 
or 5 feet wide, place 15 inches from one side a small tuft of grass ; on this place your bait, covering it over as 
though it had been partly buried by some animal. On the side nearest to the tuft set your Trap. Have the 
water just cover it. On the pan of the Trap put a tuft of grass so that the jaws will pass over it. Cover 
the Trap well with mud, grass and leaves, but not too deep, and it should be set in running water, if possible. 
When the Fox or Coyote finds the bait he will not step into the water, but will put his foot on the tuft and 
reach out for the bait. This is a sure way to catch all kinds of sly animals, and also catches Mink, Fisher, 
Coon and Skunk equally as well. To attract them the scent of Skunk or Beaver is used to good advantage. 
A small hoe is very convenient to use in setting Traps this way.
